The highly-anticipated Nostalgic Run 2021 in conjunction with Brunei Darussalam’s 37th National Day will be held on February 28 at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas.

ESTP Brunei Head of Marketing Norhakimah binti Pengiran Haji Bungsu said that past editions of the National Day Run were always held in the capital but “this year the run diverts the venue to the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium”.

Organised in collaboration with the Brunei Darussalam Athletics Federation (BDAF), the race will be contested in three categories – 5km, 10km and 15km.

The 5km is scheduled to be flagged off at 7.15am after the 10km at 7am, and the 15km at 6.45am.

The organisers recently held a coordination meeting with the BDAF at the Meeting Room of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex’s Swimming Pool to discuss preparations.

Representatives from the Traffic Control and Investigation Department (JSKLL), Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF), Volunteer First Aid Support Team (VFAST) and the Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB) Municipal Department attended the meeting.

The race is also supported by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, RBPF and the Four Wheel Drive Association Brunei Darussalam.
